This Political Economy of Europe programme from London School of Economics and Political Science draws on different theoretical approaches to political economy (positive, comparative and international political economy) and is taught by staff with academic expertise in the field and experience of policy-making in different parts of Europe. It will equip you with a rounded understanding of the political, economic and institutional context of key policy dilemmas and empirical puzzles in the EU as a whole and in its individual member states.
You will be able to choose from specialist courses in aspects of political economy including monetary union, welfare states, labour markets, models of capitalism, fiscal (dis-)integration, transition and development, and others. In addition, you will be able to choose wider option courses, covering policy-making, governance and politics in the EU; European identity, ethnicity and society; and courses with a more geographical focus. You will also attend a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers.
Former graduates pursue successful careers in politics, business, diplomacy, consultancy and journalism, and in international organisations and financial institutions. Students from this programme are actively headhunted by companies and international organisations working in the region.
